"Horse Shampoo" and christmas too!

Yeah! Hooray for Christmas! I hope you all got what you wished for and more. I know I did. I had my prayers answered to live each day in gratitude that I am healthy (or near) and alive.
Josh got me some Mane 'n' Tail shampoo for christmas. He couldn't remember what it was called so he walked around Wal*Mart asking employees if they knew where the "horse shampoo" was. It wasn't until he called my sis that she told him it was in the pet section and called Mane 'n' Tail. It is suppose to help your hair grow quick and thick. I have had many people testify of its use so I figured I would give it a try. Hey....what's the worse that could happen? My hair fall out and I am bald again? Been there. Done that.

As I am sure many of you know of the snow we had here the past week. For those of you not from here, I posted some pictures. We actually woke up to snow on Christmas day as well but it wasn't as much. Las Vegas got 3" of snow. Crazy weather.


Some of the neighborhood kids decided to sledding down the hill on the sidewalk where my house sits. Pretty entertaining...

My kids excuse of a snowman. Really? Celery sticks for arms? (Josh's idea....Dad Josh)

Drue asked for a "marry dress" this year. "Grandma" Santa made it for her.

Josh asked for a bike which he has been riding non stop around our house.

Ethan got wrapping paper! Or at least that is what he was most interested in.

Drue has entirely too many questions for a 6 year old on Christmas. When I was that I age I don't remember asking questions. I accepted Santa as he was/is. Here are some of Drue's questions:

How does Santa get to all of the kids in the whole entire earth mom?
How come we can't see him while he is here putting out our toys?
How is he magic?

Does he REALLY, mom?
(my favorite)
I would love some suggestions if anyone has them....

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

Holiday Cheer...

I would like to personally thank everyone who supported us at the Dicken's Festival. It was a HUGE success for us and you can most likely plan on seeing us next year! If you didn't make it this year, visit our website. We have all the same adorable stuff on our online store. In fact, we just got our shipment of tutus in. I wish I could say I was crafty like most and handmake over 100 tutus but I am not. Instead, I am really crafty at hours of research online until I can find the inventory at the price I want.

Okay, okay. Enough advertising. But, really. Check out our site. I still would appreciate any feedback....good, bad and ugly.

I began the first treatment of my year long Herceptin therapy a week ago. No real major side effects. Other than they will monitor my heart closely. This is the same drug back in August that gave me heart troubles. I think I will be fine though.

I will begin more surgeries in January. With the next one I will be adding to my collection of "Items/Organs Removed from Paige in the Year 2008" list. However, I guess by then it will be 2009 so I will have to start a new plaque. First up is my "other" half.

I joked with Josh that it has been since July since my last surgery and I am beginning to have surgery withdrawal. Pathetic. I know.

I am super excited for Christmas to come this year. I am every year but more so this year. I guess I just have so much to be thankful for and celebrate.

Here are some pictures I took of my niece and our complete tutu outfits and our teepees we sell. I am trying my hand at some really amateur photography. I had to have some pictures for the store.

A bit of a boring blog but I don't have anything else to say other than all my love and cheer to you all!!

Dickens Festival!

If you are bored this weekend and looking for something to pass the time....PLEASE.....come to the Dickens Festival. Our booth is there. We are the first ones around the corner when you walk in the door. I have to say, it has been pretty fun. Aside of dressing up and speaking in an English dialect, it has been enjoyable. I am a little too rusty in my dialect. It has been too long since "My Fair Lady" for me. Oh well. I will do my best.
Here are some pictures of our booth:

I missed the bandwagon of saying things I am Thankful for for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

I have been too busy trying to get ready for this Festival. But, I will go ahead and add my thoughts here. I am thankful for:

1. My Husband

2. My kids

3. My family (immediate and extended)

5. My friends, neighbors and all acquaintences

6. To be alive....seriously

7. The doctors that kept me alive

8. My cozy house

9.Jesus Christ

10. Work (having our needs met in this aweful economy)!

These are in no particular order. However, I do rank my children, husband and Christ at the top of my list. The rest is an equal tie.
